[Zenith 6S229]

Zenith 6S229, 1938

This radio is in such superb condition, it looks like it was kept for decades hermetically sealed in a chamber filled with an inert gas.  Approximately 17-5/8 inches / 45 cm tall.

Tube complement: 6A8G mixer/oscillator, 6K6G IF, 6H6G detector, 6F5G audio preamp, 6F6G audio output, 5Y4G rectifier.

This side view shows more of the radio's paper finish.

The chassis, also in nearly new condition.  All original, except for the parts I replaced:  filter condensers, line cord, and chassis-support rubber washers.
